In no particular order.

Learn a Musical Instrument: Guitar and Harmonica, working on Mandolin (tick)

Deep Sea Scuba Diving (been Snorkling a few times)

Climb Uluru

Become a Grandfather

Be at the game when my NRL team The Mighty Parramatta EELS wins the premiership (last won it 1986, came from 13th position last year and got beaten in the Grand Final by the reigning premiers)

I love your list, JAL.

It is totally realistic and achievable, and I feel pretty sure that you are going to achieve everything on your list! Best of luck to you in your endeavours.

When you have goals and make a list of them, you are going to be able to achieve them. It may take some time, but it will be done eventually. Of course, the list must be of something tangible and realistic, and not out of your personal control, otherwise, it will not be possible to be able to accomplish it. You're just making wishes for it to happen. But by having realistic goals and writing them down, you have an extremely high percentage chance of making your dreams come true someday. This strategy has been extremely successful for me, so far.

Kudos to you and your list! I hope that you accomplish each item on it sooner than later.

Edited to say: Forget item number 11. I was just a wee little one then, but from what I recall, the 60's weren't that great. I guess you need a wimsical wish on your list, even though it is not possible for it to happen.

Edited again to say: pagemccartney95, I think that your list is totally realistic and attainable, too. Best of luck to you, too, in accomplishing each item on your list, except for number one, of course. Take that one out and put in your number 11, and there you go, it can be done. Tell your relatives to get started on collecting the family jewels, lol, so you can inherit them some day. Or start a collection on your own. Or are you talking about something else entirely, lol?

Good Luck to everyone on achieving your goals and dreams!
